Online gaming software provider BetConstruct has signed a partnership with Nigeria's UBC365 to supply the operator with a selection of iGaming products including sportsbook and casino solutions.

UBC365's offering will include live betting on more than 18,000 sporting events and a range of markets for more than fifty sports including basketball, football, hockey, tennis and American football, as well as virtual betting.

BetConstruct will also revamp the operator’s casino offering, supplying a range of casino games and a 24-hour customer support solution.

The deal is the latest in a growing number of partnerships between European suppliers and Nigerian online gaming operators, with the likes of Inspired Gaming Group, SBTech and Betradar having agreed deals with local brands in the past few years.

SBTech has signed a deal to supply its sportsbook platform to land-based operator Betland, while Betradar and Inspired have launched their virtual sports products with Nairabet and 1960Bet respectively.

Playtech chief executive Mor Weizer has also identified Nigeria as a key territory in the company’s plans to expand into Africa’s gambling market.

BetConstruct’s new partner UBC365 has been active in Nigeria’s iGaming market for more than five years. It offers a full range of products including live dealer casino and a mobile product alongside its core sportsbook and casino offering.
